If you're looking for easy to understand information about when the eclipse starts, and whether you're in the path of totality - this is the app for you. Since the moon and earth are in motion, this umbra moves across the face of the earth during an eclipse.

A complete eclipse happens only when "there is an exquisite alignment of the moon and the sun in our sky", said Richard Vondrak, a lunar scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

It's important to wear approved glasses while you watch the solar eclipse on August 21st.

The last total solar eclipse seen in America occurred 99 years ago in 1918.


NASA says the only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as "eclipse glasses". A solar eclipse is not that rare.

This is why there is a narrow belt where there is a total eclipse. "You'll see the eclipse easily and safely that way". And as long as there is nothing obstructing your field of view, she said the eclipse can be viewed from just about anywhere in the Austin area. This alignment of the sun, moon, and earth will mark the first time a solar eclipse has occurred coast-to-coast in our country in almost 100 years.

"We will be passing out glasses for our viewing party, we'll have fun crafts for all, games, galactic trivia and light refreshments", Heather McWilliams, Smithfield Library branch manager said. It's on there that teachers (or anybody, really) can download lesson plans to teach about the solar eclipse, which includes video explanations created for children. But as you can imagine, staring directly at the sun is not good for your eyes. B&H Photo is offering a 5-pack of Eclipse Viewing Glasses for $4.99, a savings of $3 from their regular price.
